Iran nuclear row – could UN sanctions return?


Iran said on Sunday it would further scale back its commitment to the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, raising its uranium enrichment level beyond agreed levels to produce fuel for power plants.

Tehran vowed to keep reducing its commitments every 60 days unless parties to the deal moved to protect it from U.S. sanctions. Such moves by Iran could ultimately lead to the return of all international sanctions on the country if a party or parties to the deal trigger its dispute resolution process.

That process will not be triggered for now, said a source at French President Emmanuel Macron’s Elysee office on Sunday. The French government is giving itself until July 15 to try to get all parties talking again.

Most U.N. sanctions were removed in January 2016 when the deal was implemented. It is formally called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and was agreed by the United States, Iran, Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia. Read more
